By the Resident Agent, Honolulu Resident Agent Office, Western Region, Enforcement Bureau:
This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89 of the
Commission’s Rules,1 to Hochman Hawaii-Three, Inc., licensee of radio station KORL-FM, in Waianae,
Hawaii. Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the Commission’s Rules, issuance of this NOV does not preclude
the Enforcement Bureau from further action if warranted, including issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability
for Forfeiture for the violation noted herein.2
On August 1, 2012 and September 4, 2012, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau’s
Honolulu Resident Agent Office monitored KORL-FM, located at Waianae, Hawaii, and observed the
following violation(s):
47 C.F.R. § 11.61(a)(1)(i): “Required Monthly Tests of the EAS header codes,
Attention Signal, Test Script and EOM code…must be transmitted within 60 minutes
of receipt by EAS Participants in an EAS Local Area or State.” The agent found that
KORL-FM did not retransmit the required monthly tests issued by Hawaii State Civil
Defense on both August 1, 2012, and September 4, 2012.
As the nation’s emergency warning system, the Emergency Alert System is critical to
public safety, and we recognize the vital role that broadcasters play in ensuring its success. The
Commission takes seriously any violations of the Rules implementing the EAS and expects full
compliance from its regulatees.
